    MFP is not the most user friendly site around! Go to Community (in the blue bar at the top) then to find members, then put in the user name, that ought to do it.

Also, some of the recipes are great sources for that as well. Especially the ones made with cream cheese.
    Thanks will look now.

    Olive oil isnt bad, just have a drink handy to wash it down and your golden.

    I actually found what I think is a better way to track site in Cronometer. It lets you set up your own macro's ie 70%Fat, 20%proteins and 10% Carbs. It also shows you your daily in both grams and in percentage so I know what I've done.

    As far as the total calories...I don't know what to say, Cronometer has me set for 1397 to lose 2 lbs/week. ?????
    That just sounds really low for a guy. What is your current weight?

    I'm currently 186 lbs and eat 1500 calories a day. I lost 11 lbs in January with a goal of 1500 calories, but most days ate closer to 1700.

    I'm at 211, and like I said, both sites are giving me roughly the same number to lose 2 lbs/week. (that's as high as it will go as well, weightloss/week)

I just took a walk to try to get out some. It took all the energy I had. I have to go to work tomorrow and I want my life back. I am wondering if adding in carbs that are 'safe', maybe a Perfect health Diet style would help or if VLC is the way to go. I know we are all different but if anyone has had any experience w/ one or both and wouldn't mind sharing that would be wonderful! Thanks for letting me whine
    My experience-- My fibro went away when my thyroid meds were optimized. Prior to those getting optimized I worked on getting ferritin, vitamin D and female hormones optimized.

    For me-- TSH must be ignored and Free T4 and Free T3 need to be above midrange of their respective ranges. In fact I feel best when they are at about 75%.

    With respect to carbs, again for me, going VLC for very long makes my FT3 drop to barely in range. I found myself with low T3 and symptomatic in October when things were tested. Because of that, I experimented and ate a great deal more carbs (didn't track) from the end of October until January. On January 7 I had my frees retested and my T3 was back up where I feel best. This told me I need more carbs in my diet in order for thyroid hormone conversion to work properly.

    Do you have test results for freeT4 and freeT3? How is your vitamin D, ferritin, blood sugar?
